Nigerian left-back blasts president of former club, Marseille

Taye Taiwo have blamed Marseille president for their struggles this season in the Ligue 1 as they are currently in 12th position

Taiwo joined Marseille in 2005 at the age of 20 and left in May 2011 to AC Milan. He won the Ligue 1 title with the side during his six-year stay.

Marseille have struggled this season in the Ligue 1, currently in 12th position and the left back who now plays for Finnish club HJK Helsinki says the club's lack of vision in the transfer window is the reason.

“I am struggling to understand how he makes a call when he signs a player. After two good games, he brings them to Marseille for €17 million. It is not possible,” the former Super Eagles star told So Foot.

“You simply cannot let go. The same applies to , or . It doesn’t make any sense,” Taiwo added.

The 3- year-old defender says the team have too many youngsters and lack leaders at the back.
